To all of my chocolate lovers, this one's for you! This Toasted Hazelnut Hot Cocoa is SO good. Warm milk and cocoa powder with a little dark chocolate and hazelnut cream come together to make this hot cocoa unforgettable. I also added a little nutmeg for good measure.
To top it off, I toasted some hazelnuts in butter, cinnamon, and a pinch of brown sugar. Pour the hot cocoa into your cup, add a little whipped cream with the toasted hazelnut on top. And just - like Wow. Just wow. So good!
